8:44 am
when you reduce 101 to one lane. southbound lanes are slows. if you could tilt down for us, i want to see the crash one more time. just this dramatic video that we have here of this truck that went over the side. now, if you see there, they have tow trucks, it's unclear how badly the person driving the truck was injured, but we do understand there were some injuries, and bay shore boulevard below as you can see is also blocked. san francisco police and chp are handling this. let's go back to the desk. >> 8:44. stocks are mixed right now. october auto sales for the three detroit based auto makers rose by double digits from a year earlier. results at ford and chrysler narrowly missed expectations and stocks down 2%. the dough is up 30. the nasdaq is down 6. and the s&p is flat. your time is 8:44. let's bring you up to date on some of the other top stories we're following for you right

8:46 am
this morning. thank you for coming in. >> this is the first of 3 billion-dollar projects that oakland's going to launch in the next year. >> it's supposed to improve the efficiency of the imports and exports and create jobs right. >> what it is is 300 acres of port in the army based line that's been lying fallow for 15 years. what it will do is expand the port and create new births. oakland port is the 5th 5th largest in the country. it is the number one agricultural port in the country. that is we export a lot of california food to asia and other parts of the world. it's a critical part of the economy. with this expansion, we hope to create something like 1500 new jobs in the constructional zone, there's an e equal number -- there's an equal number of jobs. leading the country out of the recession, this is important for oakland. >> while you're here, creating
8:47 am
jobs a big part of improving the economy in oakland and could be a factor in reducing crime when you get people back to work. >> absolutely. >> i have to ask you whether we can talk about crime stats are up or down, the reality is kids are being shot and shot at in oakland. with had that horrible case of caradine shot through the door. what else is being done to make it safe. >> that's a whole show. i'm not going to go there totally. crime stats are down, and murders are down almost a 1/4. and shootings are down. the new organization of the police department is a critical part of it. you're right, this project has a 50% oakland hire. we're hoping to put a lot of people, young man out of prison, often unemployable into these construction jobs. we are developing a system with the school district and with the county, so we have a warm hand so that young men in particular, who are unemployed or drop out of school can get
8:48 am
these high paying blue collar jobs. a project like this at the port offers this. the oakland city council when i was on it, made a clear decision that we wanted a diverse economy and we wanted to use the land at the port because it would be more efficient. it would create more jobs, and also be greener, and that's a thing that people don't talk about. the trucks in west oakland have caused a lot of problems with asthma and health care,s new modernized more railroads and a faster turnover. the community will be healthier and safer. creating 1500 new jobs in the city where the employment for young african-american is three times the national average is critical. >> before you go, also today, another important aspect, b.a.r.t. union workers are voting on this contract. i would hope it seems people want the mayors to get on board of preventing a strike from ever happening again, are you working on that. >> i think the way you work on that a that they're going to
8:49 am
have to keep working. these negotiations did not go well. there were plenty of safety issues that we saw with the death of two workers that they barely touched. if they can work on those, you'll unify their joint leadership of the system. and that's what we saw is that there was a huge gap between management and the workers and some pretty critical issues, they were very far apart. >> a lot to work on, thank you very much mayor quan for being here. it's 8:49. we want to check in with sal for more on the serious accident in san francisco. sal. yes, tori, right now, northbound 101 down to one lane here in san francisco as you drive past the freeway. it looks like they have opened up another lane. northbound 101 near 3rd 3rd street. this truck went over the side, the driver of the truck was taken to the hospital, but it's not clear how badly that person was hurt. but the truck is over the side,
8:50 am
and it's also closed bay shore boulevard as you can see, and the back up is beginning to build. this is going to be there for a bit. it's not easy to get there dump truck that was pulling a trailer off the guardrail and down onto the street. it's going to be pretty intense operation for a bit. and northbound 101 did not recommend it. the alternate route is 280 instead. let's quickly go and take a look at 880 north and southbound at downtown oakland. that traffic is moving well. 580 traffic this morning is okay. this is a look at the bay bridge toll plaza, backed up for a 3 minute delay. fog is inching closer to the coast, there's a component of an easterly breeze in much of san francisco. they're starting off very mild, 50s. cooler and breezy over the weekend. today looks good. temperatures warming up. san francisco no rain in october. last time that happened was 1980 and we might get rain in november. we better get rain in november. a high of 72 today, clear skies, the fog is right, it's
8:51 am
trying, but still there's a little bit of resistance. it needs umph. it's digging into oregon and idaho and nevada, and the end result will be a cooler, breezy pattern. 30s, 40s # and 50s. 37 at novato. pretty good cool down over the weekend. warm friday, this will be the last one for a little bit as everything starts to turn northwest and that will give us a good cool down as we go early to next week. a cooler, blustery weekend for some. and today, sunny and warm. cold lows for some inland, not nearly as cold as we had. fog near the coast, trying to get close to the san mateo coast. i don't think it will make an impact today. temperatures 60s and 70s. north bay, east bay, peninsula, south bay, everyone will be close here, even temperatures around 70. still good on the coast for were money day. cool down and breezy windy conditions, a lot of low clouds
